City Council accepting applications for Audit Committee, Public Housing Authority Board vacancies

Feb 14, 2019

STILLWATER, Okla. (February 13, 2019) – Stillwater City Council is encouraging residents to apply for a vacancy on the Audit Committee and a vacancy on the Public Housing Authority Board.

Audit Committee

The board has one vacancy presently and must be filled by a banker or an individual representing another type of financial institution, per the committees requirements (see below). Applicants must also live within city limits. The term length is three years.

The audit committee works with independent auditors and city staff to provide for better financial management and reporting for the city and the utilities authority. The duties of the audit committee include, but are not limited to:

  • Recommending an accounting firm to perform the annual audit.
  • Reviewing year-end financial statements and independent accountants’ audit reports.
  • Reviewing and reporting deficiencies in internal control.
  • Reporting to the City Council as needed.

Meetings are called as necessary at a time and location to be announced.

The Audit Committee consists of five voting members who are appointed by the City Council and three non-voting ex-officio members. The five voting members include not less than one person from each of the following groups, provided, however, that one group, which may vary from time to time, may be represented by not more than two members:

  • Bankers or other financial institutions;
  • Business persons; and
  • Certified public accountants.
  • The three ex-officio non-voting members are a City Councilor, the City Manager and the Director of Finance.

Public Housing Authority Board

The board sets all policies and procedures that support the overall purpose of the StillwaterHousing Authority.  That purpose is to provide decent, safe, and affordable housing, create opportunities for residents’ self-sufficiency and economic independence and assure fiscal integrity for residents and the Housing Authority. 

The board’s approach to governance is a business approach that makes policy, articulates the mission of the organization and sustains its vision. The board creates policy that supports the organization and guides them to working with the executive director, who implements the policies for Roxie Weber Plaza and the Section 8 rental program in compliance with the guidelines established by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). 

The term length is three years.  Meetings held on the second Wednesday of the month at noon at Roxie Weber Plaza (807 S. Lowry St.). The board consists of five members, one of whom is a program participant.
